on september 11th? >> first of all, obviously we mourn the loss of the americans who were killed in benghazi. but i think it is important to understand that that is not representative of the attitudes of the libyan people towards america. >> bill: he went on and on and on o, mr. hernandez, not answering the question at all. the exact same thing he does when doesn't want to answer a question. we mourn the dead and sorry it happened but the muslims are not all bad and it was this dopey movie. the fact remains that the univision anchor asked a legitimate question. the state department was warned. e trouble. security was not up and why wasn't it up. you can't get an answer, mr. hernandez is her hernandez. isn't that frustrating to you? >> it is forne note that we are interested in -- important to note that we are interested. >> bill: i think americans foe that hispanic americans aresterred in things every other american is interested in. >> you can't blame him because somebody was murdered. >> bill: if they knew there was going to be trouble and they didn't put extra security on? >> my goodness
